Matadero Creek, Park 2


Here's Part 2 of my walk in The Baylands Nature Preserve next to Matadero Creek and Mayfield Slough (Part 1 here).


Mayfield Slough.





A northern shoveler in the slough.





An EVA Air jet flies overhead.





The marsh, part of a vast flood control basin, is diked off from San Francisco Bay behind a tidegate and weirs.





A northern harrier maneuvers over the marsh, looking for small rodents.











Mayfield Slough, looking downstream, and upstream.







A Beech A36 comes in for a landing at nearby Palo Alto Airport.





A white-tailed kite hovers over the marsh.







A turkey vulture soars overhead.







Another small plane heads toward the airport.
